While some may argue that FriendFeed is more “real time” than Twitter, Twitter is still the bigger player in the “social network league”. Here’s some great tips on how to get the best out of Twitter search.
1: Stay updated with topics you care about.
I like to keep up to date with Apple and iPhone news. But what if I also wanted Palm Pre in that cocktail but avoid all the retweets, well, you should simply do a search like this:
apple OR iphone OR “palm pre” -rt filter:links
2: Managing multiple Twitter accounts but still want to stay updated on them all?
Some users might have multiple Twitter accounts, and it would be nice to see all messages to all your accounts, regardless of which one you’re logged in to, at the moment:
to:techpatio OR to:techpatio1 OR to:techpatio2 (you catch the drift…. very simple)
